Transgressive Deaths

What an atrocity this is, again
it hurts the heart to read the headlines
willful disregard and disarray
dehumanization and death
nightmare scenario for thousands of children locked in cages, for bodies shot, beaten, harassed, hungry, thirsty, dirty, sick, sold out
borderland barter
bodies sacrificed to appease the gods of fear and greed
it's your own right hand you are cutting off
the heart bleeds
transgressive deaths
